So, I’m the proud parent of a 3 year old, a funny, demanding, and opinionated 3 year old. I think each stage BJ goes through I say “this is my favorite stage” I believe it every time I say it but … really, for real this time, this is my favorite stage. BJ tells me… Continue reading The Wonderful 3’s

Hello! It’s been a while….
My life since my last post has been... eventful to say the least. I've switched jobs and am learning a new role at a new company with new people which is hard. And BJ is now in the terrible threes. October through now has been a whirlwind to say the least and I'm still trying… Continue reading Hello! It’s been a while….
My Birthday wish
BJ’s birthday came on a super cold Saturday. We had to reschedule his birthday party; I bought cupcakes on that Thursday because I knew we’d be iced in for the weekend. The Hubter and I sang him happy birthday and he ate two cupcakes while enjoying the all too infrequent family time with just us… Continue reading My Birthday wish
Clarity… through a friend
Today God spoke to me through one of my dearest friends… BJ’s Godmother. She knows more than anyone what it feels like to go through what we went through with BJ when he was born prematurely. Her path and mine have a lot of similarities… God definitely put her in my life for a reason.… Continue reading Clarity… through a friend
It’s that time of year…
It’s that time of year, a time to thank God for another year, to celebrate BJ’s birthday and celebrate how far he’s come. I’ve been trying for the past couple of weeks to figure out why I’ve been feeling so…off. Not sad not happy just a little off kilter. And yesterday I figured it out,… Continue reading It’s that time of year…
This weekend was a weekend that I would normally feel wasn't productive. I only finished half of my cleaning and about a fourth of the laundry. BJ kept me on my toes and also decided to refuse to leave my side no matter how hard I tried to bribe him with crayons, movies and his… Continue reading My weekend
Its been a while since we've spoken to each other so let me start off by saying how much I've missed you. Life got a bit in the way of things for a while. And by life I mean that BJ has been thriving in his terrible twos and my job decided to block word… Continue reading Hello Again
7-13-13… The sad reality
I battled with myself about whether or not to post about Trayvon Martin or the George Zimmerman trial. But I decided that since I originally wanted to use this website for BJ to one day be able to read my thoughts and know his mommy’s feelings on a deeper level; that this is in fact… Continue reading 7-13-13… The sad reality
Easy, breezy Fourth of July…
For the 4th of July this year we did absolutely NOTHING… and I loved every freaking minute of it. BJ is 2 ½ years old and not quite old enough to know what’s going on so we made the executive decision to play into that realization and keep him at home. No parades, no festivals,… Continue reading Easy, breezy Fourth of July…
